Disclosure Policy for CSR Information

Methods for Information Disclosure

  • We disclose information primarily via our website not only in consideration of the environment but also so that we may promptly update our disclosed content regarding rapidly changing environmental and social conditions.
  • Along with our website, we are publishing an annual report that integrates what were previously CSR reports and annual reports into the new Annual Report format (from fiscal 2017).

Scope of Information Disclosure

  • While the DENSO Group (DENSO Corporation and its domestic and overseas Group companies, comprising 188 consolidated companies) is the subject of this report, where information does not apply to the entirety of the Group, the corresponding scope is individually indicated.
  • This report focuses on activities carried out in fiscal 2016 (April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016) but also includes information about past and recent activities to help readers develop a more complete understanding of the content.
  • Detailed information of importance to readers with a high degree of interest in CSR (data on annual performance, etc.) is available in the “Detailed Data Section.”

Selection of Content (degree of importance/comprehensiveness)

  • In addition to the guidelines listed below, a questionnaire on socially responsible investment (SRI) and opinions and recommendations solicited during dialogues with stakeholders played a role in the selection of the report’s content.
Guidelines Used as Reference
  • Sustainability Reporting Guidelines 4th edition (G4), GRI (Global Reporting Initiative)
  • Environmental Reporting Guidelines (2012 Version), Ministry of the Environment

Note: Please refer to the “Investors” section of our website for details on our economic report.

Ease of Understanding (clarity, comparability)

  • For the purpose of comparability, data is provided on a year-by-year basis.
  • DENSO’s unique terms and technical terms used for particular fields are explained in the “Glossary.”

Credibility

  • In a section introducing “CSR Highlights & Lowlights,” DENSO lists negative as well as positive information concerning CSR in fiscal 2016.
  • We believe that carrying out discussions on future activities and evaluations of current activities by way of dialogues with experts is an effective way to heighten the level of our CSR activities. Through holding dialogues and disclosing the results of these dialogues, we are mindful of increasing the transparency and credibility of our activities.

Update Period

  • Currently available CSR information was updated at the end of October 2016.
  • Information will be updated annually, but if there is strong interest from stakeholders or major progress in a specific activity, an update will be made to appropriately reflect the latest information.
